Producer Note
Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996. The estate covers 30 hectares of land located on gently rolling hills at 450 metres above sea level, in a subregion of Eden Valley in South Australia. The superb Reserve Shiraz and Reserve Chardonnay wines are still sourced from this plot. In 2007, Bob purchased the Yenda winery in the heart of the Riverina. This state-of- the-art facility has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes and enables Berton Vineyard to produce value for money wines which sit alongside their
premium single vineyard offerings.


Vineyard
The age of the vines is varied. The vines are planted approximately 1.8 metres apart with 3.6 metres between the rows to allow machinery access. All vines have been spur pruned and are trellised on a single wire cordon. The loam to clay-loam soils have moderate to high fertility.


Winemaking
All grapes were machine harvested and tested for ripeness which was aimed at 14- 14.5 Baume. The grapes were then crushed and inoculated with selected yeast strains. The fermentation was carried out at 25 to 28°C and a rack and return was performed every three hours. When the ferment was dry, the wine was then pressed off the skins and transferred to a stainless steel tank where it underwent an oak treatment using oak staves. The wine then was filtered, blended and prepared for bottling.


Tasting Note
This Merlot has a deep youthful colour with expressive aromas of plums, blackberries and violets. The palate has a velvety texture with generous flavours of sour cherries,
plums and fragrant herbs with a hint of vanilla oak.
